French
Le Garrick, located in London's theatreland, is an intimate French restaurant. There is a homely restaurant at ground level, while at lower ground level the friendly bar/dining room has intimate nooks for romantic moments. Expect classics and favourites of French bistro cooking; grilled entrecote with sauce poivre & pommes frites or lemon tarte with creme fraiche among the classic desserts. The 2/C prix fixe menu is a lifesaver pre-theatre. In an area that's full of chains, Le Garrick is a one-off.

The best Mussels I’ve had in my life! Such friendly and attentive Waiters & Waitresses, intimate low lighting in the basement. I very much recommend - the West Ends best kept secret!

Absolutely amazing restaurant. Food was rich and you could taste the well thought of flavours of France with every mouthful. The cheese fondue and the duck confit were out of this world. Le Garrick has an amazing atmosphere with different areas inside and out to suit your mood. Dominika was the best host, you couldn’t ask for more friendlier and welcoming staff.

Thank you for an excellent meal and an amazing experience for my wife's birthday. The staff sang happy birthday to her and made a fuss of us.

The food was excellent and I would whole heartedly recommend this restaurant for both its food and the very welcoming, polite and helpful staff.

I go to this place because I really like being in a booth - we are a noisy lot and it just doesn't matter when you are seated like this - and the place is quirky and clean. My four friends with me hadn't been before and liked it from the start and will definitely go back, just like me. Cheers LG!

We went to Le Garrick as a table of 4 to celebrate after a university graduation. The food was brilliant and the setting was perfect for a family celebration.

The staff were enthusiastic and ever so helpful.

We’ll definitely be coming back again - we need to try the whole menu!!

Nice eve and good food but disappointing lack of ambience and celebration considering it was promoted as a Bastille celebration. Food was tasty although i was left with the most awful indigestion that night. Sadly despite having enjoyed this restaurant a few times previously I was left disappointed on this occasion.

We got the Bastille day special offer of 3 courses for £30.
I only have to say: not worth it .
The French Onion soup was delicious, that's great
But the coq au vin was truly disappointing: it was basically bland and boring, the worst we've ever had . We had coq au vin several times in different restaurants so we know what we're talking about.
the creme brûlée was tasty but in a micro portion for somebody on a severe calorie restriction diet : I wasn't paying for that.
The wine choices were good though, but you don't make wine, and I think that's a good thing.

Visiting Le Garrick is like walking through a portal into France. It is true Bistro chic. Food, wine and service are impeccably French, as one only dreams about, and rarely actually finds in France itself. We were there to celebrate la fête National, Quatorze Juillet. Made very welcome. The set menu was excellent, the wine damn fine and very reasonably priced ( for a Mersault). Like a true Bistro you can eat and drink well and still cut your cloth to fit your pocket. I have been going there on and off for over two decades. On Wednesday’s evidence I simply have not been going often enough. Va, Va, Va mes amis😎🥂🍾🍷🍽🍷

We keep going back to Le Garrick (despite decreasing food quality) because it WAS one of our favourite places to eat for many years.

Firstly, the place was pretty CRAMMED. There's no way proper social distancing was in place. We were PINGED soon after and are still self-isolating, and I'm 100% certain it was because we had to SQUEEZE BETWEEN TABLES to get in and out or to use the bathroom (at zero social distancing)

We ordered drinks, and were ready to order food (time constrained) the waiter said 'back in a minute' and disappeared for 20+ minutes. The martini I ordered was unpleasant. The red wine I ordered was not much better. I thought I'd give the duck confit another go (awful last time) but it was still poor - basically way over-cooked to the extent that it was like cardboard in texture.

The one positive was that my wife ordered a special (chicken dish) that looked freshly cooked and appetising. Recommendation: Try the daily specials.

Le Garrick will always have a place in my heart...but...I'm going to call time out and will probably never return, which makes me sad.

Ideally located and good value pre theatre menu - lovely tender steak and tasty lemon tart. Onion soup was delicious but carry two packs minimum of chewing gum if you are on a date.

Ok - so 25 years in London and first time at Le Garrick... big mistake! This is truly a London Gem, fabulous simple French food, cooked perfectly with lots of intimate nooks and spaces to enjoy a meal with friends or a couple. Gentiana made us so welcome, as did everyone. Loved it, and we were there at a weird time 4pm, but felt like it was normal, and the citron tart? Easily the best I've ever tasted. Go there now, these places are gold dust!
